    You cannot use it with the iPhone with the new IMEI system.

    I know this is off topic but, if you are going ahead with this make sure you got the reps name and ID number and get them to make a note on your account saying what he told just in case. That way if they DO charge you then you can atleast squirm your way out of that bill.

    You cannot use this plan on a non-fido bought phone (read the fine print). Fido goes through IMEI screening to insure this is the case. Currently, this is impossible to bypass. More info here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=27447

    I am a Rogers/Fido dealer do not use this package it is not unlimited and yes you will get a massive phone bill... there will be no unlimited data package until the iphone is here in Canada. The iPhone will be in Canada very soon.. use wifi till then and be happy =)

    Just to confirm to all. FIDO is different from Rogers although is its child company.

    I have been using FIDO's unlimited data plan for a month + since they rolled out the $20 (Caller ID, VM, Who Called, 2500 text messages, unlimited browsing).

    You do not get any heavy bills, it just simply tells you what you've used and that's it. My usage on the iPhone is roughly 80 MB a month.

    As for the settings. instead of inputing wap.fido.ca all you need to do is make that...

    internet.fido.ca
    fido
    fido

    You're good to go.

    Problem here is,

    - Read fine print on their website, it says no non-fido phones

    - Call Fido and they say sure go ahead use your iPhone no problem

    So what are we to do? I've decided to stay with my $18 unlimited plan till it ends. I'll seek other options after that.

    iPhone (OTB 1.1.1 / Currently 3.1)
    Unlock, activation, jailbreak: PwnageTool 3.1
    City Fido, Vancouver
